Sure, the stocking are hung by the chimney with care, the turkey is marinating nicely in the fridge and someone accidentally made the largest slab of peppermint brownies imaginable, but what everyone REALLY wants for Christmas is a new Doctor Who podcast, right?
Enter The Verity Podcast, an ensemble of six enthusiastic Doctor Who fans who all happen to be women, across four different countries.
And yes, one of them is me! The podcast will also feature Lynne Thomas of Chicks Dig Time Lords, SF Squeecast and Apex Magazine fame, Deborah Stanish & Liz Myles from Chicks Unravel Time, Erika Ensign from the Fangirl Knits Scarf blog, and Katrina Griffiths of the late, lamented Bridging the Rift podcast and the more recent Across the Planet Comics podcast.
So much talent in one podcast! Our production is of course named after the iconic Verity Lambert, original producer of Doctor Who back in 1963. We’ll be talking about Classic and New Who, behind the scenes stuff, episode reviews, merchandise, craft, and Liz’s alarming attachment to Patrick Troughton. But mostly it’s going to be a podcast that explores female fan perspectives (because of course we have many) and enables us to rant happily about our obsessions across Skype.
Check out our teaser promo here on our brand new website! It will be on iTunes soon, allowing you to subscribe. Our first episode will be up in early January.
In the mean time, the latest episode of Radio Free Skaro includes an interview at ChicagoTARDIS with four of the Verity team: Lynne, Erika, Liz and Deb, talking about how the team got together and what we’re hoping to achieve.
Squee! I’m so excited about this. Fun times ahead in 2013.
